Volkswagen Unveils BUDD-e Concept at CES 2016

Volkswagen Unveils BUDD-e Concept at CES 2016
I’m going to withhold my final judgment until I see the Volkswagen BUDD-e concept in the flesh. Frankly, the renderings make it hard to tell what the car will really be like. This is the concept that we mentioned a week or so back that would be a sort of modern Microbus.

VW Teases Concept to Debut at CES 2016: Modern Microbus?!
Back in high school, I knew a dude that had this perfectly restored Volkswagen Microbus from the ’60s he drove everywhere. It was seriously cool, but not much for drifting. He flipped it on its side trying to slide into the parking lot one day.

Refreshed 2016 VW Passat Gets an R-Line Version

Refreshed 2016 VW Passat Gets an R-Line Version
With few exceptions, I think Volkswagen has a pretty boring design aesthetic. Of their current lineup, I find the Golf GTI and the Golf Type R to be the only cars with true visual appeal. Thanks mostly to its updated front end, the updated 2016 Passat actually looks nice, and for the first time buyers will be able to opt for a sportier R-Line version of the car.

VW GTI Clubsport Production Model to Debut in Frankfurt

VW GTI Clubsport Production Model to Debut in Frankfurt
I am not a big fan of FWD cars, but I have harbored a serious hankering for a Volkswagen GTI for a while now. It’s an impressive car for the money. The hotter GTI Clubsport version really floats my boat, then sinks it with the fact that it won’t be offered in the US.

Retrofuturistic VW Phoenix Van Turns up on eBay

Retrofuturistic VW Phoenix Van Turns up on eBay
One of the most unusual vehicles ever produced by has to have been the VW Phoenix Van. This strange looking ride looks like it belongs in a science fiction film, not on the public roads. In fact, a modified Phoenix Van turned up in the original Total Recall.

VW Electric “Scooter” is Cool and Compact

VW Electric “Scooter” is Cool and Compact
To me, a scooter is something sacred, and it comes from only one country – Italy. The first time I ever saw a Vespa – probably when I watched Quadrophenia – I was smitten. I owned a series of them when I was in college, and for the first five or so years when I was out of school.

2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI
VW is describing its newly redesigned 2016 Jetta GLI as “bold” and “sporty.” To me, blah is more like it. While it’s certainly not an ugly car (and some Jetta models have not been pretty), it has a very generic Corolla-like exterior, even with its new grill, fog lights and bumper.

2016 VW Golf R SportWagen: The Want is Strong
I think I have failed as a parent. My kids both prefer the three newest Star Wars films to the original trilogy. Then, when I showed my son the 2016 Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen and said I want one, he informed me I wouldn’t be picking him up from school in a car like that.
